This week's vlog was inspired by a friend who had a not so great experience the last time that she went to Give Back. I have heard so many similar stories and have my own to tell as well. I decided to share what I think is an easy way to ensure that your volunteers have a wonderful time and guarantee that they will in fact return. I guarantee that if a non profit is having trouble keeping their volunteers, I can help them. This vlog is the first step in my upcoming workshops
Whew! I am still recovering from the awesomeness that was Giving Tuesday! It was so wonderful to once again see so many deserving organizations receive support. It was so inspiring to see the world come together in a day all about Giving Back.
It leads perfectly into my vlog for this week. In it, I talk all about the new movement that I am creating along with you...a movement all about gratitude. When I think of how I want to end this year and start the next anew, gratitud
This Friday would have been my brother's birthday. We lost him to leukemia when he was 13 years old. As I sat down to think about how I'd honor his life this year, I realized that it would be a good time to share a few ideas so that other people could honor their lost loved ones as well.

Taking a moment for self to refill our cup so that we can continue to pour from it and do our part to help make the world a better place. In the vlog, I give you 5 self care ideas that I hope that you will indulge in over the next few weeks. Volunteering ramps up over the holidays, so now is the best time to recharge via self care. As always, if you do take
I had an entirely different blog written for this week before I went to a workshop last night that sparked a fire in me that I was very much in need of. I recently set the intention to connect with more people and organizations doing the work to make the world a better place. My first step a few months ago was to join the organization Be Social Change.
I RSVP’d for their Goal Setting/Life Visioning workshop and am I ever glad that I did. I feel excited about what’s next. I m
I am a huge proponent for consistent Blood Donation. It’s something that I feel strongly about and I share with people every chance that I get. I want to share a little something with you...if you are a blood donor, you are literally helping to save a life and in my eyes you are a hero, a champion, a protector and a warrior.

Do you currently have a volunteer in your life? Someone who sees that they can make a difference in the world. Someone who gives from their heart on a daily basis. Someone who knows that working together to fight hunger, protect the environment and the like is the only way that we can truly bring about change.
